Surprised my buddy with a trip to C\'ville after the DC show the night before. Got him to take me all the way back to the airport on Friday afternoon before telling him we were going to the 2-nighter in DMB\'s hometown! Volunteered with REVERB to get free tickets to both shows. Love me some #41 and Bartender...and Sweet Emotion -> Minarets was excellent.

Fishtender was an amazing start. TGIY with preservation hall was amazing and bayou in its current form is great. You and me was the only snoozer for me. Band and venue had tons of energy and the performances were great.

Great start with BEF Bartender. Hadn’t caught that full band since 2012 and I really like the Bartender outro with Buddy. Had a nice exxtended beer/piss break with satellite/samurai. Actually enjoyed TGIY with PHJB much more than I thought I would from the Gorge tape. Some ups and downs but super solid overall with great versions of So Right, Nancies, and Grey Street. Didn’t expect to get Christmas Song N1 and really enjoyed the stairway interpolation to Watchtower. Set up pretty damn nice for N2. Bring it boys!

Outside of the openers and encore, this show was kind of lackluster.

That Girl is you with Preservation Hall was the best!

Very solid show! There were so many highlights, but for me personally was So Right. It took 22 shows for me to hear that song and I got it, in the pit, and I was jumping with joy! Met a few new faces and made some new DMB friends. Highlights for me: BEF, Bartender, #41, Again and Again, Everyday, Sweet Emotion into Minarets, That Girl Is You (Preservation Hall Jazz Band needs to be there every time they play the song), Sledgehammer, SO RIGHT, Warehouse, Nancies, Grey Street, Christmas Song, and AATW.

Beginning of an awesome weekend! Saw them at Virginia beach in the summer and this was a noticeable improvement in the band. Great to see them starting to get comfortable again!

A fantastic and fun night. Even Satellite, which I have heard A LOT was made more fun by the couple next to me wanting to hear it for their first time (his sending her to get a beer for him, the band starting the song, her running down the aisle saying, \"I\'m here, I\'m here!\"). Preservation rocked \"That Girl\"...a great time after a fun day in C\'ville. Christmas Song was the highlight as my rarity.

This was my second time seeing DMB. First was a few days after I had tried to end my life earlier in the year. I loved this show so much!

13 repeats from last night. Show started off really strong and ended great with watchtower with stairway outro. The middle was almost identical to last night.

Great start with Big Eyed Fish and Bartender, but it slowed down quickly and was almost a song for song repeat of the DC show the night before. Loved hearing Christmas Song and solid Minarets.

Predictable but great night 1, Fishtender and the 11-man Ants Marching were definite highlights!

Too many covers, too many repeats .... just left with a sort of “eh” feeling. Still heard a bunch of favorites but it’s just a different tour and different band. With such a library of AWESOME content, I just scratch my head why we hear repeats and why we’ve had such a drastic decline in varied song play. Still had fun, just miss the fun that was getting to hear the surprises in the past.
